Description: A series of computer programs is available to extract information from the individual Fire Reports (U.S. Forest Service Form 5100-29). The programs use a statistical technique to fit a continuous distribution to a set of sampled data. The goodness-of-fit program is applicable to data other than the fire history. Data summaries illustrate analysis of fire occurrence, detection and initial attack time, and space and time relationships of multiple fires.
Key Words: lightning fires, fire occurrence, fire distribution, fire suppression, statistical analysis, computer programs
